Cacti ID please

Question

I got a bunch of cuttings around 6 years ago here and I have this one type I really like. Compared to the rest it’s a noticeably more blue shade of green. And it’s grows very fast. I started with a skinny 30cm cut and I’ve got 6 now that are around 3 inch diameter and probably around 6meters worth. Trying to figure out if it’s worth making tea.

Am not very good at IDs, it is nice looking. A different color variation, should make a good cuppa, maybe a pachanio x roseii #1, has it flowered yet?

I do remember now a few were pach x scoop and pach x something else. But there were a few at the time.  I flowers on anything I have yet.

Close to what I was thinking. Colours remind me of Matucana peruvianoids (like roseii); spines remind me of pachanoi. My first impression, whenever I consult the pics, is "short-spined peruvianus" (similar to a variety I have) but probably a hybrid peruvianus x pachanoi. It's terribly hard to be more specific in the case of lost labels. To my eye, spacing between aureoles looks wider than on most pachanoi I've seen. I'm certainly no expert.

I reckon it's an Icaros Peruvian if I was a betting man. 

Put the kettle on and make a cuppa. Only way to know but it looks like it'll be good.

Even pach x Peru was one type I got but that may have been a seeds. Alright then cuppa it is then. I was thinking the more blue the more alkaloids - like fungi lol. But who knows.

There's nothing better than a good cuppa.
