Tasting Algos, Spring III: Funky

Going through some of Philip White’s older posts, I came across: “What the funk do they mean?“. What’s a funky wine? Here are some of the associations he comes up with:

  • Tobacco
  • Stinky
  • Naughty
  • Passionate
  • Soulful
  • Pleasing
  • Attractive
  • Swindler
  • Cheater
  • Thief

Whereas the text analysis says

  • Cheesy
  • Brett
  • Sweat
  • Stewed
  • Tired
  • Soap
  • Curious
  • Oxidised
  • Muddy

Not sure if this answers White’s question or which of the lists is preferable. At any rate, with imagination, they’re not all that far apart.
