tasting deadly amanitas -- safe?

Ok -- perhaps "safe" isn't exactly the right word, but I am wondering
what a death-cap (amanita phalloides) tastes like.  In particular, I
am wanting to know the exact difference between the taste of a
spring-time (a. velosa) and a death-cap.  

An answer to this question would be nice, but what I really want to 
know is, what would be one's exposure to the amanitins if that one
(me) were to just taste a wee bit and then spit it out.

Enquiring minds want to know.......
