Belvedere Bloody Mary Vodka - Any Reports

So i was innocently reading the WSJ today and came across a nice little article on pre-made Bloody Mary mixes. And then it happened. They covered this fairly new vodka from Belvedere whose tag line in their ad's reads "Just add tomato juice" Pretty darn clever. It sounds great and I'll probably buy some no matter what but wanted to see if there were any hounds out there that had actually tried it and to hear their thoughts on how it worked?
You are right on. There is nothing difficult about a good bloody mary. Part of the problem, in my opinion is that over the years bloody mary's have "evolved" to a point of being way too complex. As i've posted somewhere many bloody mary recipes look more like gazpacho with vodka. I always have on hand ingredients for a simple good bloody mary.
Tomato juice or V8
Lea & Perrins
Vodka (no designer vodka, please)
It takes about 10 more seconds than adding tomato juice to vodka, and i'm willing to be that it is better.
About half the time i use gin because i don't have vodka, and it is pretty good.
