"Party" Ice Versus from the Home Refrigerator's Ice Machine

steelydad | Oct 5, 200707:48 AM     9

I was in Nantucket over the 3rd week of August, and bought 2 bottles of Triple 8 vodka, one unflavored, and the other orange. I had tasted the plain, traditional Triple 8 in the past, on the rocks and straight up and liked it. However, when i drank it on the rocks, it had a funny taste... To make a long story short, I find that liquor, when consumed on the rocks, or even when mixed with tonic or soda, tastes very different when I use commerically produced ice versus the ice that comes from my refrigerator's ice maker. Anyone have a similar experience?
