33 Cigars

  • Rating: 8
  • Value: 9

While not as detailed as some cigar journals, It IS one you would probably carry out into the world, where you actually smoke your cigars, so you can actually take notes while you smoke, not some vague but rosy impressions later

Author: Dave Selden of BS Brewing, an extreme home brewing and food group, in where else, Portland, Oregon
33 Books Portland, Oregon
Type: Tasting Notebook
Binding: Softcover, 16 pages, 32mo, 100 % recycled paper and Soy ink

Notes: A very handy and well laid out little journal/notebook with a number of very useful templates both the usual demographics, but also a flavor meter, glossary on parts of a cigar and   a customized flavor wheel  along with a ring gauge and ruler  to make sure you get the facts down right.  A useful field note/reference guide to keep track of ones cigars (including bands)  in a consistent, uniform way . Part of a series ( that I wholly recommend) that includes : 33 Bottles of Beer33 Pieces  of Cheese, 33 Bars of Chocolate33 Cups of Coffee33 Drams of Whiskey33 Bottles of Wine, that should allow the diligent if self indulgent to map, graph, record, and document their explorations of these various substances in a precise and consistent way for themselves and for posterity – or at least their next of kin.

Final Thoughts: A well made and useful journal/research notebook for less than the cost of a decent ( even a bargain) smoke these days. Helps map out your preferences in size, type , variety,etc., to help you avoid those increasingly expensive  mistakes with cigars and give you a solid reference to work from for further adventures in cigars. Much cheaper and handier than those other cigar journals out there. Small enough to actually carry, cheap enough not to worry about (much anyway outside of all your previous notes in it)  and enough information to easily identify the winners and losers in your smoking.
