to taste other parts I think, but I usually try some gills.
No xerampelina smell – could be Russula integra then.

Taste and Smell – my notes

After sitting on my counter overnight, the cap of this mushroom smells and tastes like a grocery store white button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus). I would call the smell as mushroomy, and the taste as savory or umami.

I peeled the cap before tasting and I didn’t taste the stem. Should I taste the other parts?

Reminds of something in the xerampelina group
