If it is - beware of the pricing
I paid £60 for a Balvenie Islay Cask there 2 years ago only to realise that the price was generally lower in ordinary whisky shops
And I don't really think Balvenie (or many others) need a Rum finish
In fact the only two Rum finished malts I personally liked was Springbank Rum Wood (which you cannot really call a finish - 5 years in rum cask after 7 years in bourbon)
The other one is a cask at Bladnoch where Bladnoch itself still overpowers the Rum after one year.
As you may have guessed I'm not too keen on rum finished scotch. Same goes for most of the wine finished one's. But then again that's just a matter of personal taste
