WOG asked: " Also, does anybody know an oil that changed for the worse by sunning?"
Not exactly sunning, but oxidizing, which could be related. The following is a longer-term change, not a short-term change like I imagine most folks think of in term so sunning oils: I have found the scent of Sweet China to become kind of rancid (not exactly rancid, but sort of) as it oxidizes. Funny - some folks were using teak oil and some other wood stains at my school - the somewhat harsh smell of that finish resembled the residue of Sweet China as it oxidizes. Anyway, this is one oil I would keep in a nearly filled bottle.

Oudline also told me the batch is the same, and the oil is 100% Malinau. I wonder if what Taha is experiencing has to do with the freshness of the oil? Perhaps as it settles down and oxidizes a bit, it sweetens up? I find the Malinau to be improving as it ages.
