No matter how many artisanal whiskeys hit the market, it seems there's never one that matches your idea of smoky, caramel-hued perfection. So why not make your own? The Whisk(e)y Your Way program at House Spirits Distillery in Portland, Oregon, lets you tailor an entire barrel (about 100 bottles) to your exact specifications. And just to make sure you know what you're doing, the process kicks off with a tasting seminar, which will help you explain to your drinking companions back home why a Port finish and Oregon oak barrels are the only way to go.
