Old Camp Whiskey Review – Meet Top-Class Whiskey!

  • by

Table of Contents

Picture this- you are sat around the campfire; the guitars are out, and a good time is being had by all. Family and friends are reminiscing about old times and celebrating new ones. The only thing missing is that perfect drink to go with the setting.

This is how Old Camp whiskey began; an idea of bringing together the wonderful elements of the country and parties. Brian Kelly and Tyler Hubbard are the two country musicians, forming the band Florida Georgia Line, who have made history by becoming the first country act to be awarded the RIAA’s Diamond Award. Needless to say, it makes sense that they need a top-class whiskey to go with it.

While on tour Kelly, Hubbard, and the other band members had a “camp-style” atmosphere where they would toast and celebrate before their performance. They wanted a drink that would ring true to this feeling while remaining honest to who they were. At the same time, it had to be a drink that would stir up the same feelings for others.

Old Camp Whiskey

The Old Camp Whiskey Process

The first part of Old Camp is an American whiskey that has been aged in white American oak barrels with a No.3 char, for at least two years. It is then blended with the rich flavors of southern peaches and pecans. This infusion makes Old Camp 70 proof with 35% alcohol by volume (ABV).

Old Camp on the Nose and the Pallet

When you open a bottle of Old Camp whiskey, the first thing that will heat your nose is the lovely warm scent of peaches followed by a buttery pecan smell. To taste, the whiskey is sweet but not sickly, it is balanced out with a nice hint of spice and even a touch of caramel.

How to Drink Old Camp Whiskey?

Because this is a blend of American whiskey with peach and pecans, the percentage of alcohol is slightly lower than typical whiskeys. This makes it ideal to drink neat. It’s smooth, warm, and sweet enough to enjoy the party without losing your head.

Alternatively, you might want to use Old Camp whiskey as the base for your cocktails. Really, you are only limited to your imagination, but we tried two cocktails that brought out the flavors and the richness of this spirit.

Old Camp with a Berry Twist

  • ½ cup of Old Camp whiskey
  • ½ cup of lemon juice
  • ½ cup of syrup
  • 12 oz of blackberries

Mix all of the ingredients, shake well and pour over ice. Top it off with your favorite brand of tonic and to really impress the crows, a sprig of fresh rosemary.

The Old Camp Mule

  • 2 oz of Old Camp whiskey
  • 4 oz of Ginger Beer
  • Fresh Basil leaves
  • Frozen peach slices

We have all heard of the famous Irish mule and multiple variations, but the Old Camp Mule is a great choice for those looking to enjoy a stronger peach flavor. Don’t forget to add ice as well as the frozen peach slices.

Bottle Design

There are two designs but the one we really loved was the Old Camp logo of trees silhouetted in a howling wolf’s head. If you are one of the very fortunate ones, you may be able to get your handles on a signed bottle!

One version has this logo printed with the design of the American flag. This was a limited-edition bottle launched in time to raise a glass to for Armed Forces Day and Military Appreciation Month. The ‘Patriot Pack’ marked the partnership of Florida Georgia Line and the United Services Organization, a non-profit organization that supports American military servicemen and women. We aren’t alone in appreciating when those who can share and support the less fortunate.

The Old Camp Community

Aside from the flavor of this smooth blended whiskey, we love how Florida Georgia Line makes you feel part of the lifestyle. Their Facebook page posts photos of Old Camp to help you chase away the Monday Blues and kick start the weekend. Their official website encourages photos of how you like to enjoy your bottle of Old Camp. Even those who can’t stand the idea of camping are drawn to the idea of buying a bottle and gathering some friends to enjoy the country life together.

In Summary

Don’t get us wrong, if you are not feeling sociable, this is still the perfect whiskey to drink while you wind down after a long day at work or once you have put the kids to bed. That being said, with its creation in mind, the best way to enjoy Old Camp whiskey is with friends celebrating and enjoying life.
