From: SWIMMING IN THE VOLCANO

p. 128. "A superb rum punch had all the characteristics of merciful execution. It assumed no virtue in going slow so that the victim might pause to lament what was being lost, and it valued stealth, the surreptitious wham: the victims of a superb rum punch never knew what hit them. They were swept from one shore of reality to another more liberated coast, a new world where they had temporary license to do absolutely anything that entered their heads, play any scene or voice any pronouncements that suddenly they fancied."
