Eliminating SPICED HONEY at Randy's certainty and assuming these are 
the only other three cultivars your iris could be, my guess is SPANISH 
LEATHER.  Sutton's describes STRUTTIN' HIGH as a ruffled grey orange 
with tangerine beards.  

The 1989 Check List describes SPANISH LEATHER as, "Lightly ruffled 
rose, copper, henna and maroon blend with golden dappling highlighting 
shoulders and broad hafts; old gold blended beard."
