Does honey go bad?

I found an open jar of honey wayyy back in one of my kitchen cabinets. I know I purchased it several years ago (4 years? 5 years?). It's partially crystallized, which is fine, but it has a fairly serious beeswax smell to it. I can't remember if it smelled like this when I first bought it.

Should I eat it?
