Looks like tricho Trichocereus Spatchianus to me, tho they dont seem tall enough. nice sized at any rate. worthy of a cutting or two.

OMG free grafting stocks!

or for potted specimens in their own right or the garden!

i agree with AmnesiA, they look like Trichocereus spachianus (now referred to as Echinopsis spachiana).

they have large white flowers.
and they are incredibly hardy.
they grow well from cuttings
and can grow very quickly, under ideal conditions.

Eric,

The plant you posted above looks like an Echinopsis hybrid.
