I have an old bottle of Heinz apple cider vinegar and it doesn't have a expire date and it smells like the real thing, does it get old?

Vinegar keeps a long time. According to the website linked below, vinegar's shelf life is "almost indefinite."

Yep^^ Keeps a long time is right. It does lose it's strength however. If you use it for pickling keep it fresh. Acidity must be correct level for safety.

If it looks cloudy, just shake it up. That's the "mother".

Easy to fix... white vinegar (pickling vinegar) is cheapy cheap. Buy what you need for pickling fresh each year.

That's true. We keep several types of vinegars ..(small bottles). Not doing any serious pickling so we could rotate some stock.

I've know Bragg's organic vinegar to turn. It smelled and tasted nasty.
