How to store Limoncello?

The thread on the best limoncello brands has gotten me wondering about the way it should be stored. One poster referred to it being in their liquor cabinet. I was introduced to limoncello by a friend who kept it in the freezer, and that's how I've always kept it since. Anyone a limoncello-keeping expert or have anything definitive on this? Is it just a matter of personal taste?
Here's my rule of thumb on liquor storage:
If it's a liquid treat that you intend to mix with other concoctions (like the staples vodka, gin, etc.) keep it out of the freezer/fridge and snug in the liquor cabinet. Why? Because ice-cold liquors do NOT mix well, and you'll be shaking it up with ice anyway, so that suffices.
Now, with something like limoncello that I like straight from the bottle, the freezer is a good option - it's much tastier ice-cold.
