We used to do these kind of puzzles all of the time in my gifted class in elementary / junior high school. We always drew tables to keep track of all the information, and you just keep going through the clues and marking table entries based on what you know. This one looks nasty though because you have 5 different things to keep track of which is going to make a very large table! (color, nationality, cigar, beverage, pet) ... maybe when I have more free time I will work on it, lol
