I agree, some sort of Cleistocactus.
It is what it is!

Too many resemble this from that link. Interesting look. I bet all were small plants from HD years ago.

Exactly - "too many resemble...". On that link, they claim there's some 49 species in the genus.
No flowers, no close-ups, no details, no measurements. That's asking a lot to pin in down further.
Here, on this link, they claim 54-69 species. The one shown on that page looks close, but I wouldn't even hazard a guess.
