Smoked cheese well wrapped will keep quite nicely for a couple of months or more. Just be sure it is dry on the surface or it will mold.

There are posts in here about 2 year old smoked cheese that has been vacuumed sealed. If you have a sealer then I wouldn't freeze the stuff,like mule says it gets crumbly.

Glad brand Press-n-Seal is almost as good as vacuum sealing.

I personally will not freeze cheese, not saying it shouldn't be done.  Some swear by it.

 

One Pro:  Will not mold

 

One Con: Will not age

i have bought 4 yo black diamond cheddar from sams and smoked it. i have some in the fridge vac sealed that has been in fridge over 2 years so this is now 6 yo cheese. It can show a little white mold after 5 years but just trim it off.

That's going to be some good cheese.  It's good to here you are aging some of your cheese.  I keep 70 lb. of my aging cheese separate from the other cheese and rotate it out, mostly first in first out,  the average age of it is now five years old, mostly cheddar.  That is what is going out for Christmas.

 

How much are you aging?

I only keep 5 lbs or so of the really good stuff. It gets so sharp it's sour. Most folks don't like it. they would rather a 1 year old xtra sharp cheddar.

Do not freeze hard cheeses. The texture changes and you wont be able to slice it properly. It Will crumble

Do not freeze, I've had cheese vacuumed sealed last 2 years.
