Can anyone tell if that site is based on an existing template?

It uses the Pacific family template on Squarespace 7.0. The Pacific template family includes Bryler, Charlotte, Horizon, Naomi and Pacific

Newer templates will have better features, but may not look similar.

What's category should I look at in the newest templates to find something most similar?

It will really depend on what you mean by "the most similar". You may mean visually or perhaps you are referring to the feature set? Pacific has a number of unique features that you'll find described in this support guide: Pacific template family.

The newest designs are on the newer version of Squarespace - 7.1. However, none of these designs are a direct replacement for Pacific in terms of features or designs. All the new designs can be viewed here. They share a common template and therefore share the same features as each other.

All Squrespace templates can be good blog sites, some more so than others possibly. Pacific family was one of the first super scroll templates, a "one page" site desgined for restaurants, retail businesses with menus, lists of services and video banners to show off the place. It is also a good wedding site for both the photographer and the couple. 

A blog type, primarily designed to be a blog, is Skye which has a built in multiple listing tweaks. I personally use Avenue for my  blog and photographs. . 

Here is the skye demo and you can see it is a blog site right out of the box:

Here is my site which doesn't look much like the original template, which is not a bad thing. I will show you both. 

https://avenue-demo.squarespace.com/ it is limited on how to display blog postings until I used summary blocks and changed their appearance  with code 

my random views

As I said any Squarespace template family, 7.1 or 7.0 can be a good looking blog including Pacific some are geared more to be that than others, so your question was a good one.

Thank you, derricksrandomviews! Much appreciated! Exactly what I was looking for!

I see that the Avenue demo doesn't have search enabled the way that the Skye demo does - but I'm assuming that you can pretty easily add that, if wanted, right?
