What are your thoughts on which one is better for aroma and/or flavoring for an English/Irish style beer?

I was never found of the aroma from an EKG, or an MRI or X-Ray for that matter.

Very tough call, I tend to use them together for English ales. A little like, what do you put on your PB&J, PB or J?

They are both good hop choices for English ales. I tend to lean towards fuggles a little more for aroma. i just like it a little better. Just my preference.
