I've never used a distiller's yeast in my wine. I have used it for some other things and it seemed to work very well. Mine was a straight distiller's yeast and not a turbo yeast.

I put it in at end after other yeast has fermented it almost finished. This has worked to jack up alcohol levels without the nasty taste. I just did it in the "Knock The Panties Off Strawberry" Wine and it has been a hit.

Yes, most use it as a base and add a flavour bottle, be it spiced rum, whiskey or whatever you fancy; also it benefits greatly from charcoal filtering.

Did it get the result you were looking for? :)
