Types of Kicks (How to Classify and Group?)

I'm looking for some tips to classify and group types of kicks by feel and sound. Not necessarily their original source (808, 909, etc).

I'm doing this for a particular pad and bank. I will be carouseling through them quickly but will not be able to see their sample names or their waveforms.

So I'm trying to categorize as many types into set groups. Doesn't matter group size although keeping it to 4-8 samples per group would be best.

Any suggestions to classifying a kick based on this would be greatly appreciated.
