Carbon dating accuracy called into question after major flaw discovery
Pigments through the Ages - Dating works
More than a third of vintage Scotch whiskies tested at a specialist laboratory have been found to be fake, BBC Scotland has learned. Twenty-one out of 55 bottles of rare Scotch were deemed to be outright fakes or whiskies not distilled in the year declared. SUERC measured residual concentrations of a radioactive isotope of carbon present in the alcohol contained in each bottle in order to establish the ages of the whiskies. The samples had been sent for analysis by whisky broker Rare Whisky RW , which said it was responding to "growing concern surrounding the proliferation of fake whisky" in the secondary market. The rare whisky bottles identified as fakes this year included an Ardbeg , which had been acquired from a private owner, and a Thorne's Heritage early 20th Century blended whisky purchased from an auctioneer. RW said a total of 10 single malts purporting to be from or earlier were found not to be genuine. RW co-founder David Robertson said "the vast majority" of vendors were not knowingly selling fake Scotch but every purported rare whisky bottle "should be assumed to be fake until proven genuine", especially if it claimed to be a single malt.

The present page is meant as an explanation of the relevant aspects of this analysis, for non-experts. It is not copying information from the internal report except when specifically stated , but an independent explanation and calculation.
I was watching the discovery channel and they were claiming something was 30 billion years old or some such. This stikes me as a deception. Is carbon dating real?
