From locals 33 Books, 33 Cigars is a handsome new journal for chronicling your voyages through the charms of cheroot, with each page featuring stogie self-review tools like a designated area to paste in labels, spaces for notes and info like maker and length, and perhaps most awesomely, a "flavor wheel" on which you graph palate pleasures ranging from "tropical fruit" to "leather", leading Chris Berman to storm in, steal your cigars, and have sex with them in a motel.
