Is it just me or if you store Nestle water for like 2 weeks or so (maybe shorter during summer/hot days), they develop a weird taste? I don't know how to describe it. It's sorta plasticy. When they're fresh, the taste isn't as noticeable but it's there. If you store them for a longer time, it gets stronger.

I never have this issue with Kirkland/PC branded water.

I know what you mean, like a dusty plastic taste. The last amazon $1.99 deal posted on here not too long ago arrived & half were frozen solid. The ones which weren't had that taste you are talking about. 2.5 Cases went down the sink. Seriously considering a water filer but don't wanna spend too much on one, like $100 or so but so many to choose from.

Full disclosure: I work for a company that sells water in a paper-board container, rather than plastic bottles, so I'll do my best not to be too biased here.

Depending on the quality of the materials used in packaging goods, there will almost always be some form of residual taste from the packaging. This is significantly more apparent in clear packaging, as it does not provide much resistance to UV light. Nestle uses a thinner bottle than most companies, as a cost saving measure, so it provides even less resistance than other plastic packaged brands, and causes the residual taste to become more apparent at a more rapid pace.

This water is literally always this price at various retailers throughout the GTA... not sure why this warrants a new thread?

My uncle works for a transport company. Few years ago he brought a truck load of Nestle water from New York to BC. I don't know if the water was being returned to BC or if it came from NY to sell here in BC.

Good insults are hard to find. Why waste them on someone you don't like.

That's concerning.

If I can't store it the cases I bought from Amazon, then they are useless.

Can you filter it to remove the taste?

I've been to BC and tried your local Nestle water from Hope. Even though it was over $9 from Safeway (after all the fees) it didn't taste half as good as Nestle water from Aberfoyle, ON. And I was surprised that in AB they were selling Nestle water from ON and not from BC, given the proximity.

How many different tastes of water are there? To me, tap water and filtered water, that's about it.

I'm guessing that you've never tried to drink a spring water. It tastes a lot different than either tap or filtered water.
Regarding bottled water, I don't like the taste of Nestle from Hope, BC, Real Canadian water. On the other hand, I like the taste of Kirkland and Aberfoyle water (now known as Nestle Pure Life).
