Looks like Cephalocereus Senilis.

Looks great! Is this a hardy outdoor species? Always on the lookout for good-looking outdoor columnars. At 7 ft I assume it is fast growing (?)

We had this for 24 years, grown tied to our front balcony railing. Only watered one week a year and depending on the natural rainfall the rest of the year, even during the drought. It is hardy alright!
Many of our other cacti had perished.
