The "new" capacitor that's been sitting on the supplier's shelf for a
year or two probably still needs reformed. Don't confuse heat damage,
which makes capacitors dry out, with aging which causes breakdown of
the oxide layer. Electrolytics only retain their proper
characteristics when operated regularly.
