Default What Yeast for Newcastle Clone?

I am brewing a Newcastle clone this weekend. I started another thread about my recipe but wanted some thoughts on yeast. I do 10g batches and normally use 2 different yeasts for comparison sake.

BierMuncher uses Whitbread Ale (Wyeast Labs #1099) on his clone recipe that I am basing my recipe off of.

What other yeasts have you used for New Castle clones, and to what result?
