Corked Rum

I purchased a bottle of Ron Izalco 15 year Rum today from a NC ABC (State) store and when I got home, took the cork stopper out it was totally corked. I am guessing these corks can have TCA just like wine corks, right? I did not taste it because I am planning to take it back for a refund. But does this also affect liquor like it does wine?

I have had several bottles of corked Bourbon over the years.
