Can anybody i.d this please (Syringa Microphylla Superba)

I always thought it was a Small leaved lilac 'Superba' but would like to know if it actually is! It was in the garden when we moved in and is quite a stunner.

That is so funny, a very clever bit of technology or a good guess!

I inherited a lovely clump of lilac when we move here! Yours are especially beautiful! Is it a Preston Lilac, perhaps.. or a McFarlane?

Ah, you've thrown the cat amongst my pigeons now Lori 🤔
It'll have to wait till next year now as it has finished flowering.
