Rotating cigars

How often should you rotate your cigars? I'm using a 60 count humidor and boveda packs double rack attached to the lid.

    Smoke them faster and you won't have to rotate at all...just a thought.

    I go through my humidors about once a year to reorganize, I don't bother with rotating them otherwise.

    In a 60 count rotation would never be an issue

    Never, say never.

    Also, punctuation? Jeez!

    Yeah, I'm that way.

    Thank you and knew I was overthinking it. I'll pass on the quarter turn method . LOL. Did like the smoke them faster suggestion.

    I never kid. I never drink bourbon. And,.... (drum-roll),... I never had s.e.x with that woman. 

    Ba-dum-tish!

    I don't trust a man who doesn't drink bourbon.

    I dig around so much they get rotated on accident, I say let the sticks fall where they may

    I bring ten sticks from the bottom to my top tray every week.  And, that way my humidor is like a lava lamp. Sticks rise and then they fall. Also, I literally rotate my sticks a quarter turn per week, on Mondays. At the end of this year I have calculated that all my labels will be face down. Unless I forgot to do it one week. Then all the labels would not be face down at the end of the year. I go clockwise. Heads away, feet towards me. But, what if I forgot to do it two times in this calendar year? The labels will be staring me in the face at the end of the year,........Oh, this is bothering me now.
    That's a pretty good routine there. I've always meant to do this. It is very sound advice.
