      Oak casks

    Correct Answer
    D. Oak casks
    Explanation
    Whiskey is typically aged in oak casks. Oak is the preferred wood for whiskey aging because it imparts desirable flavors and aromas to the spirit. The porous nature of oak allows the whiskey to interact with the wood, absorbing compounds like tannins, vanillin, and lignin, which contribute to the complexity and character of the final product. Oak casks also allow for a controlled oxidation process, which helps to mellow and refine the whiskey over time. Therefore, oak casks are the most common and traditional containers used for whiskey aging.
