Read somewhere about storing it in the fridge, not sure I’d go that far but as long as you keep it out of the sun it should be ok. You can always hook the line up to some scales and pull till it breaks or tie a few knots to see how easily it snaps as older line usually gets more stiffer and brittle.

When you buy line from shops you don’t always know how long it’s been there, some shops probably have spools that’ve been there for years.
