The taste is decent I suppose. Chewier than their usual yeast glazed doughnut, and not really very flaky or light. It does not hearken back to a croissant much, though it is fairly tasty, beating out their regular glazed handily...but not 2.5 times tastier. Their regular doughnuts sell for $0.99 each, less if you buy in bulk. This is good, but not "super premium" good, so the value just isn't there.
On the FACE Rating System, this doughnut gets zero faces. It's fairly tasty, and certainly better than their usual plain glazed offering, but the super high price is just not worth paying outside of "for curiosity's sake". If you are a doughnut fan, give one a try, but I wouldn't expect it to change your standard doughnut consumption habits at all. If they ditch the premium price and bring it into their usual rotation of doughnuts though, it would definitely become a regular in my dozen.
