Storage of Toasted Sesame Oil

FelafelBoy | May 9, 200710:32 PM     9

How long can a container of bottled toasted sesame oil at room temperature be stored for after it has been opened? I have had mine stored for years - it smells ok and tastes ok, but I am concerned that after more than a year or two, the oil may have gone rancid and the chance of "free radicals" may be more likely.

(I use toasted sesame oil only at the very end of a stir fry dish cooked in refined sesame oil - I pour a very small amount of the toasted sesame oil in at the very end just to slightly warm it up.)
