I assume when the Scotch age on the bottle is the amount of time it spent in the barrell....while shelf life doesn't mean a thing?

Correct. Unlike wine, spirits (whiskies, brandies, etc.; stuff that's been through a still) stop aging when they're bottled. (I sometimes wonder if leaving a half-empty bottle of Scotch on the shelf, even when sealed properly, might result in the taste getting degraded due to oxidation from the half-bottle of air on top of it, but that's not the same kind of change you get from the usual way whisky is aged.)
