Yes, but it's mellowed just a tiny bit... it's still way too strong by itself.
It works very well to blend with other batches. For example, I took a gallon of my blackberry mel and added about 1 cup of the vanilla mead, which gave the already super good blackberry a slight vanilla aftertaste. I've also blended it with my peach wine, for a nice vanilla peach hybrid.
