Infused alcohol - how long does it last?

So last year, I had some very ripe, but delicious white peaches that I had to do something with quickly. So I threw them into some vodka and then totally forgot about them until yesterday. I've filtered out the spent peach and now have a yellowish, but clear liquid that still smells fruity. Haven't sampled it yet, but I read somewhere that infusions of this sort don't last beyond a few weeks. Something about the taste of the fruit would be gone quickly since this is just an infusion and not a liqueur.

Is that true? Or should I sample and see if the stuff is still drinkable?
