The "green” rye malt in this whiskey's name means it has been made from malted rye that has not been dried (which is often done so it can be shipped). Because they malt their own grains, Coppersea decided not to dry it out, and instead go straight from malting floor to mash. It's then aged for seven months.

Tasting Notes

"Huge amounts of pine and wood on the nose, like walking into a wet forest. There's also a cola sweetness, lemon, and something earthy, even musty, like mushrooms. On the palate, it's similarly earthy and herbal and sort of funky and muddy, with pepper, lemon, and decaying vegetation. In the finish, a bit of honey and cinnamon asserts itself. "
