Allergy / Sensitivity Warning

If you know you are prone to an upset stomach from raw eggs, keep in mind that this cocktail may not be for you. Chelsea noticed it slightly about halfway through the cocktail and mentions it during the episode.

Chelsea’s Tasting Notes

Macchu Pisco Shot
  • Like grape juice with a strong palette opener.
  • It’s a breathing grape juice.
  • This is nice and there are more flavors growing on my tongue.
  • Now I understand why this is an award-winning spirit.
  • We have not had a spirit like this before.
  • It’s a white grape juice flavor, as in the grape skins.
  • If I was congested right now, it would clear all my sinuses.
Pisco Sour Cocktail
  • That’s nice!
  • I could drink that all day.
  • Really light.
  • I’m getting the bitters more on the aroma
  • Not an overwhelming sweet nor sour.
  • Very fluffy
  • Be careful with this cocktail because there’s 3 ounces of pisco per cocktail at 44% ABV.

  • Very different from any spirit we’ve ever had.

Story Notes

Erick had quite the lineup with three unsettling tales all hailing from Peru. The first was about the bizzare deaths that occurred at La Casa Matusita and the paranormal encounters that still happen within its walls. He then tied the remaining stories to Peru’s El Tunchi, a malignant whistling spirit, both sure to leave you with chills.
