Loathing test, said to be complicated (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

distaste

Here is my best explanation:

'loathing' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'test said to be complicated' is the subsidiary indication.

'to be complicated' indicates an anagram.

'test'+'said'='testsaid'

'testsaid' anagrammed gives 'distaste'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for distaste that I've seen before include "Staidest (anag) - aversion (to)", "Mild dislike, aversion", "Repugnance", "Dislike of something unsavoury", "Antipathy, aversion", "Feeling of dislike - unsavoury?", "Abhorrence", "Feeling of dislike or aversion", "Revulsion" and "Is stated (anag.)".)
