Interesting I wonder why this is? I know many places no longer do the flaming version of the bob marley shot, but I've never heard of a resort banning the non flamed version.

I think it was probably only the flaming version. As meeko said, most places don't xerve those any more, but you should still be able to get the non flaming version.

Ditto the Flaming shots. Apparently some folks aren't smart enough to drink it through a straw and not burn their faces!

I was at a resort in Jamaica recently where the bartenders would tell you that you can only order one Bob Marley each day. I thought the reason was the time it took ro the bartenders to make them. It seemed that the bartenders didn't like making them because of that.

Bob Marley shots are scary enough without the whole burning your face off. I can see why they may limit them because they are time consuming to make. I've also found that some resorts don't make the true shot. Couples does and wow that was potent.
