This weekend, The Chanler will host its annual Scotch & Cigar Tasting Series on October 25th from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. The tasting will feature a 6-course dinner paired with 6 different whiskies. After, relax with a cigar and your personal favorite whiskey. We are excited to announce there will be a special guest speaker at this year's event, David Blackmore. David has earned critically acclaimed titles such as Whiskey Ambassador of the Year & passionate advocate of Glenmorangie Single Malt Whiskies.
David has made an enormous impact in the whiskey world. If you are a whiskey aficionado, you will definitely be familiar with his name. He has been named Whiskey Ambassador of the Year for 2012, 2013, and 2014. He also is known for leading Glenmorangie's single malt Scotch whiskey education program throughout the United States. David is also responsible for Glenmorangie becoming the fastest growing single malt whiskey in the U.S. for over four consecutive years.
Before all of his awards and success, David grew up a native of Edinburgh, Scotland. Here his passion for whiskey quickly blossomed. This was aided by his days of working alongside the famous "Sixteen Men of Tain at The Glenmorangie Distillery" along with the whiskey creators at Ardbeg Distillery.
His determined and hardworking spirit has made David the premiere expert of whiskey. It is said that he has such a sophisticated nose that he can distinguish single malts from across Scotland in a single whiff. Vice President of Glenmorangie in the U.S. has said of David, "He is a consummate professional, and he has made teaching about whiskey an art form. David is truly in a class of his own and we are honored he's been a part of our family for the last six years." Currently, David hosts numerous tastings around the country and we are excited to announce he will be bringing his unique talent to Newport this Sunday!
