Best/Fastest Verizon Galaxy Nexus ROM?

I've asked this question before but, since the ROM landscape is always changing (and I flash ROMs way too often), I figured I'd poll for more responses. What, in your experience, is the fastest and butteriest ROM (and kernel) for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus? I've tried Jelly Belly, AOKP, LiquidSmooth, and CM10 and, while none of them are bad, I was wondering if there is any ROM that I haven't tried which may offer better performance. With the new Nexus (pl.) coming soon, I really want a ROM/kernel combination that can keep me from resenting those with noticeably faster, better devices. (I don't expect my phone to magically run as if it has a new S4 pro processor, but I do want it to be at least somewhat competitive.)

Thank you!
