Whisky Lover's Treasure Trove
Aug 2012 • Friends
If you enjoy Whisky, this is the place, the Cavern of Ali Baba.

Located in the basement of what looks like a fruits and vegetables store, one finds a treasure trove of Whiskies. Everytime I go to "La Cave" in La Baule I discover new references. My estimate is that there are over 200 references, some basic ones, but most quite out of the ordinary. And the prices are quite reasonable.

Best of all, almost all (over 90%) of the Whisky that is in stock is available for tasting. Even expensive bottles in the 100-200 Euros are available for tasting. The owner himself, a 2-time Best Whisky Sommelier Winner, conducts impromptu tastings with panache and good humour.

This store is 90 minutes away from where I live (ie. a 3 hour return trip) and yet going there once every 1-2 months is a real treat.

The Cave also stocks Rhum and Cognac and Wine, though Whisky is the core reason to visit.
