Finishing cherry -- danish oil mix vs tung oil+shellac

Hi,
I'm about done with a fairly large (for me) project. It's a floating panel bookcase out of solid cherry.
I want to make sure I choose the right finish. Previously I've often used Minwax Antique Oil (a danish mix, I believe) on smaller cherry projects. But recently I read some articles that recommended tung oil followed by dewaxed superblonde shellac.
I tried both on a test piece (two coats), and darned if I can tell the difference!
I also tried a piece with shellac alone, but it didn't quite add the depth to the grain that I like.
Tung oil itself with just two coats looks uneven and dull in spots.
Can you pros out there explain to me the advantages of using a danish oil mix versus tung+shellac? Or perhaps point me to a better finish I might be overlooking?
Thanks in advance!
