Could anyone that has tasted this mandarin (a satsuma) compare it to quality of an imperial.

I have tried Satsumas, (not E's s m,). In Japan they are called Unshu mikan, and are/were very popular. I thought they had a mild sweet flavour, whereas Imperial has a sweet-acid flavour. There are about 5 or 6 Satsuma Vars in Aust, some early, some late, so depends which one E's propagate.
Also they are one of the most cold tolerant mandarins, so may suit your location.
I have read that Satsumas have a two week window of perfection for commercial production in Japan, that is why all the early to late types were developed.
I think quality should be high, but flavour will depend on your tastes.

Dude, you live next door to Engalls nursery, where they have a mature tree you could have tasted the fruit from earlier in the year.
Personally a bland fruit, aka sub acid. It was a sport from a Okitsu satsuma I believe. Like all Satsumas they deteriorate if left on the tree past maturity.
Prefer a clementine over Satsumas, which ripens around the same time.

I can't think as many moves ahead as you can Mr Spasky.
