The bottle is unopened.
I was pregnant last Christmas hence it's still in the cupboard grin

Open it & pour some out. smell it, look at it. If it's off you'll be able to tell.

Check the texture. Curdled Bailey's doesn't sound too appealing.

It's probably fine. If it looks and smells alright, bottoms up!

Isn't it a little early in the day though? wink

If it hasn't curdled it may be fine.

I prob wouldn't because of the milk/cream but i know others would grin

no, definitely not. In fact I'll come and take the bottle away for you. grin

agree with others, it should be fine, alcohol is a preservative

It'll be fine. They keep for months/years so I doubt it will curdle just after a few extra months.

If it's bad, you'll know it, as it will have curdled. It'll probably be fine, but might not last as long as usual once opened. Keep it in the fridge once you've opened it.

No curdling then you are good to go! Please report back when you have opened itgrin

I would if it's unopened. I am debating drinking an opened bottle of tia Maria that's been open around 2 years. I had one drink out of it then found out I was pregnant!

If it looks and smells ok... (Which I'm sure it will) I would grin

I've been drinking from the same bottle of baileys for years I know total lightweight here so I always give it the sniff test each December as I only drink it near xmas. No idea what the expiry date is but it's always been fine.

Sounds like Star might be like me. I had a bottle on the go for years - it was about 5 years out of date when I finished it and it was fine. It even survived a house move, which is how I know how old it is - I remember looking at it and thinking 'I'm sure we opened that in the old house' which was several years previously.

As pps have advised - rely on your sense of smell and taste buds. Give it a good shake first. I'm sure it'll be fine. Enjoy!

Mummyshortlegz Tue 22-Nov-16 13:13:25 It's only after two years open or not that it might not be as tasty.

I had a bubble bath and a glass of Bailey's from a bottle that had been OPEN a year. It tasted lovely, and I was fine grin

shock at people who can make a bottle of Baileys last for years!

BuntyFigglesworthSpiffington Tue 22-Nov-16 14:04:04

I love the idea of a years old bottle of Bailey's. Only being dusted off for the death of a monarch or the birth of a child and then solemnly placed back in the cupboard.

StarOnTheTree Tue 22-Nov-16 16:25:15

I know liz Every year one of New Year's resolutions is to drink more but it never happens shock

Ratonastick Tue 22-Nov-16 16:46:25

Bitter, nauseating experience tells me that it will be absolutely crystal clear if you pour a glass of off Baileys. The smell will linger for a while too.

In fairness, I think it had been open for a few years and was at the back of the cupboard where only the desperate venture......
