You can request that Tor only use specific last hops by setting the
"ExitNodes" option in the configuration file.  By default, Tor treats
this option as a request: if none of your preferred exit nodes is
available, Tor tries other nodes to see if they can work.  You can
make the option mandatory by setting the "StrictExitNodes" option.

See the tor manual page for more information.
