Yes, nectar. Some years supers filled. Vermont has declared the plant an invasive. I have a yard where the farmer sprayed all honeysuckle on the farm. No more supers full there.
What is the quality of the honey? I've never raised anything close to pure honeysuckle.

You really don't want anything to with the honeysuckle other than looking at someone else's, it can be pretty to see it in full flower but a major PIA if you have to work around it. Vermont isn't the only one to declare it invasive, which it very much is.

We have tons of it around but I normally don't see but a few bees working it; other folks indicated it needed to be in the sun and only certain times of day.
