Do Extracts have a shelf life?

I know that herbs/spices DO have a shelf life, and expire due to oxygen, and freshness, BUT extracts are based in alcohol, so do the theoretically last forever? Is the flavor compromised due to aging? Thanks!

I don't think any flavors are compromised. And I think if the flavoring agent is still in the alcohol, it intensifies with time.
