What type of barrels is bourbon matured in?

Bourbon must be matured in brand-new, charred oak casks. The use of brand-new, heavily charred casks in Bourbon production tends to impart all Bourbon with very sweet, rich, spicy, and vanilla-heavy flavours. 

There is no minimum aging requirement for selling it in North America, however at least 3 years to be sold outside North America.
