I have thoughts.

How about deriving *glaktos from a coloured *e-grade
form of a root *dlok- (where *k is uvular). What's
the origin of Greek /glyco-/ and Latin /dulcis/

All I know is that this word is not more ancient than
the Late IE period as I've define it because it doesn't
conform at all to anything in Mid IE when I try to
trace it back with the processes that I'm aware of.
