While the concept sounds amazing, the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

A classic example of a "heavy Sherry overcoat", the rich fruity aromas of PX Sherry are very attractive at first encounter. Unfortunately, they subdue the Laphroaig house style considerably, greatly reducing the mineral peat quality. Moreover, the two qualities remain separate. Whereas the Sherry intrigue fades quickly, the peat never truly surfaces, but remains "chalky". The considerably pungent alcohol esters lift the volatile fruit aromas, but do not diminish with water.

Accordingly, the palate is dominated by an uncharacteristic alcohol harshness alongside a volatile, fruity acetate quality. Instead of showcasing the best of two worlds, the elements appear to cancel each other out.
