I looked at images you recommended, and they look correct. I did not notice that strong tar smell as is indicated by this species. Im usually diligent about this, but may have passed it by while waiting for it to stain….

Any particular smell on this?

It reminds a lot of one that I have been used to call Tricholoma bufonium, closely related to Tricholoma sulphureum (by some regarded to be synonyms).
