Pisco - Mystery bottle?

gromit | Jul 29, 2007 10:28 PM

A Peruvian friend of mine just returned from visiting her family in Peru and, knowing that I enjoy pisco, she brought me a bottle. Trouble is, it's sealed in a decorative leather and woven covering. Looks like maybe it's just intended to be a souvenir, but hey, if it's pisco, it's pisco. My friend, unfortunately, doesn't drink, so she's no help in determining the potential contents. It appears that removing the decorative covering would destroy the appearance of the bottle, although I could strategically cut it so as to remove the cap. But then, not knowing what it is... do I drink it? I'm thinking it might not be particularly good pisco if it's sealed up in this way, but who knows?

Thoughts? Anybody familiar with this?
