Question: I would like to know which of the Mint varities is the strongest in aroma and taste.

Answer: In my experience the mints will vary depending on the origin of the plant and the growing conditions and the time it is picked, but peppermint seems to be fairly strong in most cases. It's always a good idea to do a little scratch and sniff test prior to purchase to make sure the plant meets your expectations or else to get a start from someone who has one you particularly like.
