Without further adieu, here are our picks for the Top 11 Cigars to Look Out For in 2022:
Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligans
The Filthy Hooligans are coming back with their shenanigans in spring of next year. The eye-grabbing cigars from Alec Bradley that come out before every St. Patrick’s Day have been scheduled for a limited release and will return once again in the early spring.
These cigars are made in a barber pole style and combine wrappers in a pattern that shows the differences between each. There will be two lines:
1) Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole
This cigar features dual wrappers of Nicaraguan Habano and candela and is a toro, measuring 6 inches by 50 ring gauge, and has an interior blend featuring a Sumatra binder around Panamian and Honduran filler.
2) Filthy Hooligan Shamrock
The Shamrock is triple-wrapped with Nicaraguan Habano, Maduro Nicaraguan Habano, and candela tobaccos and has the same interior blend and filler as the Barber Pole.

Due to a lack of available candela, these two will be limited releases consisting of 2,000 24-count boxes of Barber Poles and 1,500 10-count boxes of Shamrocks.
Casa Turrent’s Three New Lines
Casa Turrent, a Mexican cigar company, known for its 1880 brand, is expanding with three new lines to be shipped staggered to retailers in early January.
These new lines consist of:
3) Doble Claro
Doble Claro uses a light Connecticut-seed wrapper from Mexico, dark San Andrés Negro binder, and a mix of Habano Criollo Sancti Spiritus.
The rosado is rolled with a Habano wrapper, Habano 2000 binders, and Habano Criollo San Andrés leaves.
5) Doble Maduro
Doble Maduro is a dream blend of San Andrés Negro tobacco grown in the lush Valley of Fire and produced by experts who know their stuff.
The new blends will be available in the same five sizes as their last four 1880 lines:
- Short Robusto, measuring 4 3/4 by 52 ring gauge which debuts in January
- Perfecto 5 1/2″ x 54″, coming in February

6) Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 Year of the Tiger
In October, Davidoff announced a new cigar called the Year of Tiger.
It will be their 11th release in this series, and it’s also the shortest so far; These 5 x 52 piramides also are the first cigar in the series that features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. This wrapper was, according to Davidoff, “treated naturally to bring to life the fur markings of the Tiger on the finished cigar visually.”
If you live Davidoff, you may want to check out their Millenium Toro. View them on our online shop.
The blend includes a Dominican hybrid 257 seco binder and a combination of five Dominican filler tobaccos:
