    Century Reserve 21 Years Old is 100% corn whiskey. It is one of many Canadian whiskies where the producer/bottler has used the the word "rye" very liberally.

    When you taste Century Reserve 21 Years Old, you will notice the smooth mellow creamy character often associated with corn. There is barely any dry spiciness associated with rye.

    Canadian whiskey expert Davin de Kergommeaux writes:

    "There is no rye distillate in this whiskey, which counts that out as the
    source of the spiciness. No, the spices come straight from the oak and
    perhaps from the corn distillate itself. And without any rye distillate
    in the bottle, Century Reserve showcases the flavours that other
    whiskies often bury under an avalanche of rye."

    "Perhaps because it is 100% aged corn whiskey and has connections to the old Potter’s whiskey brokerage and eau de vie
    distillery, hopeful Canadian whiskey buffs sometimes wonder if Century
    Reserve 21 year old could possibly be from the same stocks as whiskey’s
    holy grail, Bush Pilot’s."

    "Century Reserve 21 is definitely not a blend. No, it’s one of the few remaining all-corn whiskies in Canada."
