Glenfarclas Sherry bombs 105 proof and 15yo?

I recently bought the 105 Cask Strength and for a highland sherry bomb it's great - even at Finnish prices. But it's kind of a difficult drink: at cask strength it is amazing but I can only tolerate it in tiny amounts - this bottle will last me a year. Adding water changes the character so much and dilutes the intensity so much that I'd rather drink 1cl undiluted that the more typical 4cl pour with water. This is not a moreish whisky undiluted but I still like it much more undiluted.

But we also have the 15yo at roughly the same price (a bit more but not prohibitively). That's available at a 46% abv rather than 60% which sounds much more palatable but also more intense than the 40% that most whiskies are available. So how is the 15yo? Also a sherry bomb but a more moreish one than the 105 proof? If I like the flavours and intensity of the 105 might that be a good bottle for when I don't want a punch in the face but do want similar flavours?

I actually haven't tried any of the GD Cask Strength... but I love the regular bottlings (esp 15 and 21yo). I like Tamdhu Batch Strength and Aberlour A'Bunadh, although some say the quality of the latter declines with each release.

Unfortunately we don't have the Tamdhu or Aberlour. Or the 15 and 21 Glendronach. We only have the 12yo and Batch 9 cask strength Glendronachs.
 
All those other options are sold out, but I still wanted a strongly sherried style, so I bought the Glenfarclas 15yo and I love it. So we might not get the best of everything here, but it's still lovely enough for this novice.

It's like a basket of dried fruits! Lovely scent. All sherry sweetness and dark aromas. 46% abv is better for me than the cask strength. It still has incredible richness and body and flavour. Love it.

But now I've gone through several bottles with sherry ageing. And previously I loved Islay-style smoke and peat. So what next? I guess I should acquaint myself with Bourbon more?
