Golden Star Jasmine Rice

Anybody else use Golden Star Prime Grade jasmine rice?
I bought a 25-pound bag of it last year, and it was wonderful.
It took us over a year to finish off the bag.

Just recently bought another 25-pound bag, but there's something wrong with this batch.
It still smells fantastic while cooking, but it always comes out gummy.
I've tried washing the rice multiple times before cooking to get out the excess surface starch (which, by the way, I usually didn't do with the batch from last year), I've tried different proportions of water added to the rice cooker, I've tried letting it cook for different lengths of time, but it still always comes out gummy. It only gets a little better if some is left over and eaten a day or two after the initial cooking.
