No really, sorry but I couldn't resist...anyhow a 'taste' from the gas is most likely the topping gas (ie the air) that was pumped into the tank (probably time for the shop to change the filter and you were tasting a little charcoal or filament breakdown)
Test fill two cylinders (ie your topped nitrox and your air cylinder) put on a blind fold and have someone 'shuffle the tanks' and take the pepsi challenge. Odds are you get it right 50% of the time (but then so would someone flipping a coin) check the compressor filters and then move to the O2 storage bottles (and for god's sake tell them to get Aviators Grade O2 not the industrial stuff.
