Six YO whisky no longer in fake ID club

The 82 stuff includes Kahlua and some Disaronno. The stuff I don't have any clue about the age of includes bottles of a few types of whisky, bourbon, rum (from back when they had paper seals), vermouth and several mini bottles of bourbon, whisky and SoCo (again with paper seals). I went ahead and dove into some unopened Beefeater and Maker's Mark and haven't died. (Obviously )
I've heard there isn't an age limit on alcohol, but is there a change in flavor? Or is there an age at which you should toss?

Once a bottle of spirits is opened, as a general rule you should try to finish it within 6 - 12 months. Again, this depends on how much air is in the bottle. I once had a rare bottle of Irish whiskey, got down to the last 3 or 4 inches, and decided to save it for a special occasion. By the time the occasion arose, the whiskey was completely oxidized & we ended up pouring it down the sink. Be warned!
