It depends on your goals. BT encryption will prevent people from determining the particular torrents you're downloading, but won't stop your ISP from identifying (and potentially blocking or throttling) BT traffic. See e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorren ... encryption for some more information.
Again, you didn't state your goals, so there's no "best" here, but if you value your privacy I'd say VPN is always a good option, especially since it would also protect connections that aren't covered by BT encryption, like tracker communication.
