I suggest using "testing" instead of "experimental" because testing is
the direct upgrade path from stable. Actually I'm not brave enough to
try even that (i.e., mixing stable and testing) but I'll give a direct
answer to your question anyway.

So, in your problem the package manager prefers the stable (jessie)
repository and tries to load some libraries from there. However, your
experimental gnupg packages require versions that are not in the stable.
Possible solutions:

  - Add those unmet dependencies to your "apt install -t experimental"
    command line.

  - Use "aptitude" command and its dependency solver interactively. It
    suggests different solutions. Choose the one that suggest loading
    all necessary packages from the experimental repository.
