If it only wasn't for that bottle of Romulan Ale dated 2283...
I didn't read this entire thread, so forgive me if this was already mentioned. It's more likely the bottle has a stardate
, and not an Earth date. So, SD-2283 would put it well into early TOS (I realize the stardates were screwed up then, but when are they not?).
So, the Roluman ale is probably aged at least 15-20 years, which would support McCoy's statement.
