NYT Crossword Puzzle 8-30-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 53A Jose _ (tequila brand): CUERVO because I was taught in college that good tequila is 100% agave, and Cuervo just says that it’s made with agave, but there’s no disclosure as to how much agave. And if it were 100%, I imagine they wouldn’t hide that.

This puzzle’s theme was probably sponsored by:

18A Doesn’t have fortitude: LACKSHEART.
23A Home of the University of Kentucky: LEXINGTON.
36A Finishes eating ice cream or soup, say: LICKSTHESPOON.
51A Rescuer for when you’ve lost your key: LOCKSMITH.
56A Tiny neighbor of France: LUXEMBOURG.

Finished this one in 8:08.
