You inspired me to call in on the way home. I'm now the proud owner of a bottle of each. The Aberlour is hugely sulphury sherry with rich burnt toffee, cherry, orange, slight mint. Wonderful. The Laphroaig is interesting - not sure I've ever had sherried Laphroaig before. It is not really medicinal, but warm and ashy with a long finish of earthy ashtray notes. The sherry is present on the palate and adds a bit of a third dimension - some rich coffee notes, a hint of fruit - but takes a back seat as the smoke comes through.
