A bartender is just a pharmacist with a limited inventory.
you have mildew building up in the outside air vents from leaves and other materials collecting underneath the grates. lysol or a product from your auto store will do the trick. I actually had a nest of mice inside my Corolla's outside air vent once. Make sure something has not died in there.

I'd like to check mine as I might also have the same problem

I'd like to check mine as I might also have the same problemopen the hood, look at the bottom of the windshield on the passenger side.It's pretty easy to get the cover off to clean stuff out if you need to. You have unhook a rubber weatherstrip and remove one other fastener, and the cover slides forward and off. see attached picture.There is a rubber weatherstrip along the front edge of the cover, It is attached to the cover in four places. looking from the engine bay, the one on the left is the most difficult because you can't get to the underside to compress the clip and push it out of the hole. There is also one otherr fastener, I don't know what that kind is called. It looks like a phillips head screw, but it's not. If you push up from the bottom, the center piece pops out and then you can remove the sleeve.
One other area to check is the drain tube at the bottom of the evaperator core housing (under car).Check to see that the drain tube is not plugged or stopped up --If it is you will have standing water inside your housing.
I have a similar or perhaps the same problem. I wouldn't describe it as a sulphur smell, but as a moldy or musty smell. It seems like rotting vegetation or perhaps a small dead animal. It is most noticeable from the air ducts when the vent/fan is on. I'm on the verge of taking it to a Pontiac dealership. I wonder what they will say.
Me,sometime even the vent is not on,smell's,but i thing is smell more at gold weather.I talk to the seller,and a employe of goodwrench,the two say that the car are new,that is normal,after +-40000k the smell will gone for ever.
