I don’t remember tasting it, but if it is as hot as you say I would have remembered it. The hottest one I ever tasted- to my memory- is L. piperatus, and that was hot. R. emetica is sissy spicy compared to these. Most of the time I try to taste them, but I recall one particular day when we were finding a large amount of Russulas and I tasted so many of the same species that I simply would not taste another or a look alike.

I guess you didn’t taste it. It would have been a memorable experience — R. perlactea is very, very hot.
