Yeah, the Cree XRE's beam profile sucks. It's all about sheer throw with that LED. I haven't seen a tint I like. WH is close, but it still is not as nice as the WO tint for the Seoul P4.
Speaking of High CRI, I bought a couple of those High CRI Nichia 083 LED's.
Here's one I put into a Princeton Tec EOS.
They're on the warm side, but are still a lot cooler than tungsten/incandescent color. The color rendering is beautiful.
Here's some comparison pics:

Nichia 083 High CRI
The downside, is there is a lot less light output. So the High CRI comes at the expense of Lumens.
