You need to make a decision whether you want taste or strength, natural flavors or high-ABV, Scotch whisky or (literally) rocket fuel. These two endeavors are not completely mutually exclusive, but they are usually at odds with each other.
A potstill is the logical choice for naturally liquor flavors, while a reflux still is the logical choice for flavorless ethanol-water azeotrope, which you can dilute and to which you can add artificial flavors.
It's a choice.
