So I have been going to Casa Carreras Cigar shop for the past couple of years but this is the 1st review I have done for them so here goes... They open and close as posted but if I am a few minutes early, they go ahead and open up for me... OUTSTANDING! for a long time I would go in there and describe what I was in the mood for look for just the right Cigar. A couple of months ago I found my Favorite Cigar, the "Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial" of the "My Father Collection". Myself and my Brother are both Cigar Smokers so I bought him a box for the Hollidays.... He Loved them. Anyway back to the review, they are very knowledgeable, great customer service.... 5 Stars all around... Good job guys!!!
