Canadian whisky is actually mostly corn, these days, as are sourmash and Bourbon. It may have a little rye for flavour. Rye whiskies like Alberta Spring and Alberta Premium are favourites of mine, and distilled from rye mash only. (This is not the legal definition, by the way ... but any rye drinker can tell you that Canadian Club ain't it.) See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_whisky .
