Review: Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey

Sweet and lowdown, you got it: Old Camp is a whiskey from a country duo called Florida Georgia Line. I’ve never heard of ’em, but once you set foot in the spirits world, eventually we were bound to cross paths.

Essentially a novelty spirit, Old Camp is mystery whiskey that’s heavily doctored with peach and pecan flavors.

How heavy? Peach candy and candied nuts are really all you can catch on the nose, overpowering like sticking your face in a tub of some kind of super-Southern ice cream. On the palate, an overwhelming sweetness hits you right in the face, all peaches in syrup, maple, brown sugar, and flamed bananas. It takes quite awhile for the initial rush of sugar to fade, and after a minute or so the more savory pecan character finally shows its face. This is actually the most engaging part of the spirit, a comforting and authentic hint of roasted nuts that goes a long way toward redeeming the sugar bomb that’s come before.

Think of Old Camp as an upscale Southern Comfort, and consider using it the same way: Very sparingly.

70 proof.

    I just bought it did not say anything on label about being reinforced with sugar syrup. Ill guess since Im ketogenic and perpetually Atkins that the stuff has at least 30 grams on the carb chart and sugars oye veh! Drink a bottle of cheracol or maple syrup, I wont drink it its nice but it is dessert and not for anyone with sugar problems instant headaches.
