Sep 27th, 2015Lots of hotels had banned serving them (holiday inn,riu negril) because either too potent or the flame but you should try it or two or three. Amazing drink.
Aug 17th, 2015The comment by "Rain," the Jamaican fellow, was a low blow to the many tourists that bring in millions of dollars, so that many Jamaicans can be meaningful employed. Shame on you!
Oct 11th, 2013I had it on my honeymoon in Ochio Rios and I felt in luv with it..
Sep 30th, 2013Bob Marley-jamaica - who cares! One love man! N the red represents the color of all of our blood...seems some need to remember that n stop all the bitterness b.s.....lifes to short!! So serve me up a few!! Cheers!!!!;-)
Apr 14th, 2013I had TEN of these at the pool bar while in Jamaica three days ago...so pretty and yet so powerful. Wow!! Also, I was told that you put some of the white rum in between the shots colors so it wouldn't blend, and you have to put it in S-L-O-W-L-Y!

Jul 25th, 2012I was in Jamaica last year. People are great. The Jamaican flag is green for the vegetation, yellow for the sun that always shines, and black for the people, when the red it add it is a reggae thing. I will try a Bob Marley this year.
