Today's word is unctuous, spelled U-N-C-T-U-O-U-S.

Unctuous is an adjective that means fatty or oily. It can also mean smooth and greasy in texture or appearance. Unctuous also means plastic or insincerely smooth in speech and manner. Here is the word used in a sentence from The Guardian by Ben Tish.

"To make the most of its amazing qualities, marinate the lamb for a few hours and then slow-cook the meat. Over time, the layers of fat reduce to sticky, unctuous, lip-smacking perfection and help keep the meat moist."

Nowadays, the word unctuous usually has a negative connotation, but it originated as a term describing a positive act, that of healing. The word comes from the Latin verb unguere meaning "to anoint," a root that also gave rise to the words unguent meaning "a soothing or healing salve" and ointment. The oily nature of ointments may have led to the application of unctuous to describe things marked by an artificial gloss of sentimentality. An unctuous individual may mean well, but his or her insincere earnestness can leave an unwelcome residue with others, much like some ointments.
