Default EKG vs Fuggles

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.

Default I love Fuggles

I raise Fuggles in the garden and make my Stouts and English Bitters with Fuggles. Makes my garden smell real nice in August....

I use both EKG and Fuggles in my Scotch Ale.
EKG - 60 min.
Fuggles - 15 min.
EKG - 2 min.
