Isn't whiskey made in a vat called a malt?

From what I have read whiskey is not whiskey unless it is aged in a barrel.

Scotch whisky must be aged in oak casks for three years or more. Bourbon whisky must be aged in new charred oak casks (no minimum time). Other than that, there are few types of whisky with aging requirements.
