I thought cochlo by micranthm at first too, but only one bud per stem. Stems are tall too. Maybe some fairrieanum in there? Tanya Pinkepank (mic X fair)??? Wouldn't consider it "old" either tho. [EDIT- afterthought] Maybe Black Diamond (del X fair)- our division of Joel Edwards' 'Cestnut' clone does have a dark spike and bud?
