is engine oil hygroscopic?

I have some Rotella T6 laying around from last season still in its container. Last season I used a quart of it and sealed the cap back on. Now, since its been sitting in my closet since then, I'm curious if its unsafe to use. I know with brake fluid, once you open it up and brake the seal, it's best to throw out if you dont end up using all of it, I'm just not sure if its the safe for unused oil that has been opened at some point.

it's fine. oil and water don't get along. and any condensation that MAY be there will cook off when the oil is heated in the engine.
