EL8 Dist3 vs. Fatso warmth?

I have a few years of experience with my Distressors but only a few hours clocked in on the Fatso, not nearly enough to fairly compare the warmth/distortion aspects of both units. I use Dist 3 quite frequently on dirty guitars and bass, usually with 1:1 ratio and just 1% thd, but sometimes wonder if i'm going overboard with it... is the Fatso's warmth similar to the tape saturation Dist 3 of the Distressor, circuit-wise? Or is it a completely different beast offering a different flavor of saturation?
