That Wikipedia article, long ago, used to be really helpful but now is much shorter and leaves out a lot of stuff. Esp. in terms of the many different types of supertasters.

Some people are sensitive to fats and alcohol. The current article doesn't mention fats at all and mainly mentions alcohol in relation to other bitterness factors like hops.
